Once again, we are ahead of the dumb curve as evidenced by all the hoopla being given to a heart-shaped potato Obama received yesterday while appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Obama quipped, "The main reason I'm here? I want to see that heart-shaped potato."
Of course if this spud sounds familiar, it's because I blogged about a heart-shaped potato in September 2008 right on this here blog. This romantic carb was given to me and stayed in my Subaru for months afterwards. I couldn't bring myself to eat it or toss it, until spring came and having a potato in my car seemed weird.*
That there is the original love potato: Accept no substitutes!
*I know, the fact that it didn't seem odd to be driving around with this for about six months is weird. What can I say? In New York we can use our vehicles as mobile root cellars.
